Highland Hospital Acute Tower Replacement
Alameda County's Acute Tower Replacement (ATR) Project is a current construction project which replaces the Highland Hospital acute care tower that is operated by the Alameda County Medical Center. It is crucial for providing continued healthcare services to the people of Alameda County. When completed in 2017, the project will bring Highland Hospital into compliance with the State of California’s strict seismic safety laws. The ATR project is a ten story facility which includes six floors (169 beds) of acute care space along with four floors of medical services and support spaces.
During the course of developing commissioning plans for the ATR project low-voltage systems, it was determined that additional expertise with understanding and commissioning these systems was needed. ACSI was engaged by the project commissioning team to assist with development of start-up and functional test document preparation and to provide onsite testing support for the more complex systems. The project low-voltage systems include facility-wide voice paging, CATV distribution, distributed antenna (DAS) supporting internal use of cell phones and emergency responder radios, nurse call, wireless clock, access control, video surveillance and recording, infant tagging and A/V presentation.
